Hydraulic clutch for '37 LaSalle

Hello everyone. I'm using a 327 Chevy engine with my original '37 LaSalle transmission. Mechanical clutch linkage will be too hard to fabricate. Can a hydraulic throw-out bearing set-up be done. I know I would have to install a clutch cylinder but are hydraulic throw-out bearings available and where can they be purchased? Any advise and help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks... John...

An easy way is to use the setup off of full size WT/1500 Chevy/GMC pickups 89-mid nineties. This uses a conventional master and a slave that can be adapted to the Chevy throw out bearing arm. Parts stores carry both..

your lasalle conversion

What bell housing are you using to mate to the Lasalle? GM offered some bells with a hydraulic clutch cyl attached. Seen them on the 87 trucks. In fact I have one on my 64 Chevy. Works good. The master is a little bit of a trick as the GM one has a slanted mounting and the offset can be a issue lining up with the push rod from the clutch.
Transdapt and others made aftermarket bells for the GM SBC to the Lasalle but they were for mechanical linkage. Simple enough to build a bracket and attach a cyl I would think.
How are you adapting to the yoke on the back of the Lasalle?
